Understanding a Pump Efficiency Test

May 18 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Many growers who have efficiency tests conducted on their pumps may not have a complete understanding of what the data means and how it can be useful to them. This class will talk about the three main measurements used to calculate pumping efficiency, including flow rate, Total Lift or Total Dynamic Head, and Energy In. Other information gleaned from these numbers such as specific capacity (well yield), cost per acre foot to move water, and kilowatt hours per acre foot of water pumped will be explained. This class will delve into each line item of a pump test report, explain how the information is arrived at, and discuss how improving pumping efficiency can benefit the farmer.

This course qualifies for 1 hour of FREP INMP self- certification continuing education credits and 1 hour of Certified Crop Advisor continuing education credits.
